Judith Beck Blaufrankisch, organic wine, lively, fresh and very approachable natural red from Austria. This is a great example of how Austrian wines can have both finesse and drinkability, a deliciously light red made from Blaufrankish that really packs a punch with flavour. Dark cherry red, with a bright nose of blackberry fruit and a smooth, supple palate. The tannins are soft and the finish is spicy and fruity, not at all funky. We were recently lucky enough to be visited by her at our shop in Settle and we were really struck by the aromatic qualities of her wines. Despite her very calm and collected personality, her wines are electric and lively. The fermentation is natural in large wood barrels, and the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Enjoy on its own or most food.
